Spoon will turn 30 this year. The indie rock band from Austin, Texas is adored by connoisseurs for the high quality of their sharp, melodic songs. They possess an unusual gift for always sounding the same yet also different every time. The quintet has managed to stay just outside the spotlight for all these years. Medium-sized in the United States and a cult band in Europe. Things are starting to change with their tenth album ‘Lucifer on the Sofa’ (2022). It made a lot of end-of-year lists and was nominated for the Awards in the Best Rock Album category. The album is possibly their best yet. “It’s classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton”, says frontman Britt Daniel with tongue firmly in cheek. Following a very long absence they are finally back on a European summer stage.
